Zurich Jazz Orchestra

Active since:

The European jazz scene boasts a number of world class professional Big Bands, all with their own rich history and tradition. The Zurich Jazz Orchestra, founded in 1995, undoubtedly belongs to this exclusive club.

The big band recorded its fifth studio album in the winter of 2020/21, the second under the direction of Steffen Schorn, who was musical director for six years before changing to his current role as congenial composer in residence.

Fortunately. The album “Dedications” is a worthy successor to “Three Pictures”, released in 2018. Schorn’s compositions and thus the sound of the orchestra have, if at all possible, become even richer, more colorful, more differentiated, but at the same time more powerful

Michael Neff

„Michael Neff setzt mit seiner Gruppe auf entspannte und entspannende Töne. Das hält er auch durch, wenn es mal ein wenig lauter wird. Seine Trompete und sein Flügelhorn klingen dabei so schön, lyrisch und leicht, dass sich die Frage aufdrängt: darf Jazz schön klingen? Er darf.

They craft sonic spaces out of staccato piano riffs and ecstatic waves of percussion, last heard on their record ‚Borderland' that was released on Ronin Rhythm Records.
